You’re not alone.  But for me, one thing that helps me control myself is getting up and exercising- when I have just sweated my ass off for 45 minutes, I’m less likely to gorge and ruin all that hard work.

When FI is away I consume sooooo much chocolate & carbs it’s not funny. I totally understand.

@notbridey:  1.5 lbs in chump change in reality.  a person’s weight will flucuate up to 6 lbs a day depending on when you take it and if you are wearing the same things each time.  now if you said 10 lbs i’d be concerned ;  ) but having said that, i do know it can be distressing : P

@notbridey:  I make all the stuff he hates to eat when he’s not home and stuff my face! So no you are definitely not alone.

@notbridey:  Oh i eat ice cream when he’s away lol. =) So i’m right there with you.

I binge on sweets and then the next day work them off like crazy! I’m not sure if he knows why I become a gym junkie (I go once a day, but when i eat horrible i work out til i burn all those calories lol)

Go nuts. I don’t usually eat much if he’s gone, but I seriously don’t know what to do with myself and end up getting into some sticky situations.

One time, he was on camping trip and I was like, “Yeah, I’m totally going to go blonde and look awesome when he comes back (I’m a brunette)”. So, at midnight, I went and got hairdye and turned my hair bright orange.

It was a travesty.

I don’t eat any better or worse when FI is around or away. However, I do watch more trashy TV, which is equally terrible and damaging (just to my brain, not my hips).

I’ve been guilty of that when DH has been gone for work trips, but next time he goes away, I’ll focus on going to the gym instead of food, lol. I’m still trying to get myself back in the habit of working out more.

@notbridey:  I used to drink lots of wine and eat nothing but raw veggies with hot sauce when DH went on business trips.

But now I’m pregnant, and when DH went on his last business trip I was like “Well. What do I do now?” So I went and visited family, and GAINED 5 POUNDS. In 3 days!
